Week 2
Who Am I?

If someone asked you who you are, what would you say? You would probably tell them your name. If they wanted to know more about you, they might ask who your parents or grandparents are. Who our family is gives us clues about who we are.

The Bible says that we are God's children. Does that mean God is our father or mother? One of the ways we understand God is to look at the people we know and love. The people we know and love the best are probably our parents or grandparents. Think of the person who loves you the best: God loves you at least as much as that.

God can be like a person, but God is different than any person-God can be anywhere and see anything, and God loves everyone. We don't have to imagine God as a person at all: think of the most beautiful thing you can: God is at least as beautiful as that. Think of the brightest light you can: God shines at least as bright as that.

Being God's child is a wonderful gift. It means we belong to God's family and God loves us and we can love God back. But we can also find God in nature, and music, and colors, and everywhere we see something beautiful and good. God isn't part of just one family, God is part of the whole world.

Who are your favorite people? How is God like them?

What are the things that are most important to you? How is God like them?

While you are thinking about God, get a piece of paper and some crayons or markers and draw a picture that shows what God is like. Give it to one of your favorite people, and tell him or her how it reminds you of God.
